Eastern Canada and the Atlantic coastline that runs along it, is both rich and varied. From the cosmopolitan cities of Toronto and Montréal to the charming coastal towns of the Maritime Provinces, Eastern Canada offers spectacular scenery, vibrant cities, and historical treasures. It’s a region with a strong European heritage, in particular English, Scottish and most of all French. Dine in a Parisienne café in Montréal, explore the bustling metropolis of Toronto, walk cobbled streets in historic Québec City, or visit the lively arts scene of Ottawa. Like the rest of Canada, it’s an area of outstanding natural beauty with some spectacular natural wonders including the thundering Niagara Falls.
That beauty can be found in its most rugged form along the Atlantic seaboard and its main provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. Almost every driving route and trail along this stretch of coastline hugs magnificent beaches, coves, parks and bays. Here you can visit tiny fishing villages along the breathtaking Acadian Coastal Drive.
Discover lively Celtic hospitality while feasting on fresh seafood along the 185-mile Cabot Trail. Follow the Viking Trail to a 1,000-year-old Norse settlement and two UNESCO World Heritage sites. Stand on Cape Spear: scan the horizon for icebergs, whales and the phantom wrecks of ships lost at sea.
Welcome to Canada’s East Coast.
